How to use "Mete out" in context?

When meteors streak across the night sky, they are often mistaken for shooting stars. But unlike Stars, meteors are tiny celestial objects that burn up as they enter Earth's atmosphere. Meteors can be as small as a few millimeters in size and emit a bright streak of light when they enter the atmosphere. Most meteors burn up in the atmosphere, but a few, called meteoroids, will survive and slowly drift across the sky.
